GE Renewable Energy has appointed Pascal Radue president and chief executive officer of its hydro business, based in Paris.
Radue comes from GE Power’s Steam business, where he lead the Clean Combustion Product Line (boilers and air quality control systems) and the Asia Pacific Region.
He started his career with Alstom Power in Belfort, France, in 2001. He successively held several leadership roles for Alstom and then GE Power in Australia, Switzerland, Thailand and Malaysia.
“We are excited to welcome the new leader of our Hydro business,” said Jerome Pecresse, CEO of GE Renewable Energy. “Pascal Radue brings a proven track record of delivering turnkey projects in a global environment, as well as developing and implementing successful global transformation strategies. Hydro plays an important role in our Renewable Energy strategy; his experience and skills will be essential to meet our ambitious growth targets for hydropower.”
In September, we published news that Yves Rannou, the former president and CEO for hydro, had taken a position as CEO of wind turbine manufacturer Senvion S.A.
GE Renewable Energy is a $10 billion business bringing together energy products and digital services portfolios in the renewable energy industry. Combining onshore and offshore wind, blades, hydro, and technologies such as hybrid systems and concentrated solar power, GE Renewable Energy has installed more than 400+ gigawatts of capacity globally.
Just last month, GE replaced John Flannery, naming H. Lawrence Culp Jr. its new CEO and chairman.
